Hunter College

Amanda Fox-Rouch

I am currently a junior at Hunter College majoring in Political Science. I believe in the importance of human rights and widespread availability of basic needs and I hope to, one day, help to encourage the spread of peace rather than war and disease. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, eating, sleeping, and writing. When I’m not busy working or doing any of the above, I can usually be found wishing I had been born a turtle instead of a human.
